Drought in Central Oklahoma
Drought is nothing new to Oklahoma. The period between 1980 and 2000 was unusually wet; however, Oklahoma is now returning to the cyclical droughts of the 1930’s and 1950’s.
Drought conditions bring the prospect of long-term impact on water capacity issues in the region. ACOG helps provide information to consumers and media for all Central Oklahoma entities by producing the bimonthly Drought Report which showcases several different drought metrics and current water storage capacity of several Central Oklahoma reservoirs.
